Medieval Barley Bread Recipe

If I knew half as much about websites as I do about history, you wouldn’t be seeing this post. I just learned about a plugin that would make my recipes all shiny and pretty and printable. So I decided to give it a try. This recipe was included in an earlier post, along with a good deal of history on medieval bread. I had hoped to include the printable version in the original post, but try as I might, I couldn’t get it to work. So a new post with old information is what I have to offer. Enjoy 🙂
